Wacky Wednesday #12 - Fruit & Veggie Theme!

I was so excited when I saw the theme for
this weeks challenge that
Paula is having over at More Than Favors.

It was the perfect chance for me to use my
New “Fruit & Veggie Puns”
stamp set from My Pink Stamper.

I decided to use the Banana from
Create a Critter cut at 3”.

The rest of the card was made from my
scrap bin so I couldn’t begin to
tell you what the paper is.

Hope you enjoy it!

More Pink! 
Can't get Enough:)

Just wanted to share...Hope you liked it!

Winner of the Pink CGull Tool Set :)

This is sooooo EXCITING!!  My very first giveaway!

I just finished with Random.Org choosing the
lucky winner of the Pink CGull Tool Set:)

Random.Org picked Lucky #13

Here's what Carol had to say...

"So jealous of your organized, clean, and beautiful work space!!
You've definately utilized every inch of space, haven't you? :-)"

Here is Carol's great orgaization tip...

My best organization/storage tip is to use office-supply
"in and out" boxes for currently-working-on projects
so they're quick at hand!

Congratulations Carol!

Please e-mail your full name and mailing address to 
cricutchick@rocketmail.com within 3 days
so I can get your prize sent out right away.

Thank you to everyone who participated in my first giveaway.

My New Design Studio :)

FINALLY!  My New Design Studio...
and my first Giveaway!

I can't believe how fast this room filled up!
I used to have the corner of a room that me and my Fiance shared as our office.
Where did I put everything? 
I can hardly fit it all in here.
Thank you to everyone who shared their storage ideas:)

This is a straight view of my work area from the staircase

This is the same view but slightly angled.
I still have to sort
the paper to fill in the racks. 
I just took clumps of it
and stuck it in the racks in no order

Work area from a different angle. Someone gave me
the idea to put metal up under my shelves
and place small magnets on the bottom of
my Stickles bottles.  So I did and they are hanging 
right where I can see them all and the Stickles glitter is
always up a the tip when you pull it down!  This was a brilliant idea!
(I hope you can see the bottles in this small pic)

All of my punches.  Another great idea from many
of the sites that showed off their craft rooms.

This is the transition into the sewing area.
Full Closet of supplies

Sewing Area

Well...That's about it.  I will show the
whole room later but
I still have some things that are not out of  boxes yet.
I haven't decided where to put this extra stuff. 
I also have this cool white desk (below) 
in the corner under the
back window that will be the new home of my
Imagine when it gets here.

My new Imagine on this desk:)
(Coming soon)

Hope you have enjoyed the pics!

Now for the giveaway... This is my first one
so I hope you like it!
All you have to do is become a follower of my blog and
leave a comment on this post of a great
that you can share with me and everyone that visits this post.

That's it:)

Here's what you'll win!
Since it's October 1st and it's all about
The Pink this month,  you'll win this CGull Pink tool set!
I'll use random.org to pick the winner on
Monday morning the 4th

I can't wait to see and share your ideas!
